THIS FACTOR ANALYTIC STUDY OF OSCAR (OBSERVATION SCHEDULE AND RECORDS) SCORES FOR CLASSROOM BEHAVIOR EMPLOYED RATINGS BY SUPERVISING FACULTY MEMBERS OF THE CLASSROOM BEHAVIORS OF 115 STUDENT TEACHERS AND THEIR PUPILS ON THREE OCCASIONS APPROXIMATELY 1 MONTH APART. FIVE FACTORS WHICH COULD BE INTERPRETED AS INDEPENDENT ASPECTS OF TEACHER AND PUPIL CLASSROOM BEHAVIOR WERE ISOLATED--(1) SEAT WORK, TYPICALLY QUIET, (2) AFFECTION, (3) TEACHER NONVERBAL SUPPORT OF LEARNER, (4) TEACHER VERBAL SUPPORT OF LEARNER, AND (5) "TEACHER-TALK-TOTAL," WHICH PLACES EMPHASIS ON PROBLEM-STRUCTURING. FACTOR MEANS ACROSS THE THREE OBSERVATION OCCASIONS SHOWED THAT (1) TEACHERS ASSIGNED GREATER AMOUNTS OF SEAT WORK AS THE QUARTER PROGRESSED AND THAT (2) "TEACHER-TALK-TOTAL" INCREASED FROM THE EARLY TO THE MIDDLE PORTIONS OF THE QUARTER BUT DECLINED TOWARDS THE END, WHILE SEAT WORK CONTINUED TO INCREASE SLOWLY. FACTOR LOADINGS ON THE OSCAR VARIABLES ARE GIVEN. THIS IS AN ABSTRACT OF A PAPER PRESENTED AT THE AMERICAN EDUCATIONAL RESEARCH ASSOCIATION CONVENTION (CHICAGO, 1966). (LC)
